  4. The first part of the question has been answered, “It’s a special brushed effect” The inside and back of the grill appears to have been painted black. Can this be verified? Alex D.
  5. I took my Radiator casing/grille shell and grille to my plater today. The question came up as to the proper type of finish to the plating. Is it supposed to be a bright finish as on the casing or more of a matt or brushed finish? The inside and back looks like it may have been painted black with just the front surface bright. There is nothing in the authenticity manual as to the proper chrome plating on the grille. Alex D.

    1938 Chevy Business Coupe

    My first antique car 48 years ago was a 37 Chevy. If I recall correctly, the Master Deluxe had what they called a Knee action front suspension instead of the typical straight axle.

    Think whitewalls weren't used before the war?

    Are those milk crates for jack stands?
  11. With all the great help and advice from members of this forum I am confident in rebuilding these DL carburetors. I have learned a lot from conversations with Jon (Carb King) and David at Cad-Carb. David has supplied me with butterfly shafts, spring kit and bowl covers. The gas tank has been removed and sent to Gas Tank RenU. They will open up the tank, sand blast and coat the inside. The fuel line will be replaced from the tank to the pump. About 40 years ago I bought a 1930 Buick 60 series. I needed to drive it about 20 miles to a storage garage. I had a good friend following behind. We must have stopped every 2 miles to clean the fuel bowl from the rust coming from the tank. To this day I am still reminded of that adventure.

    Well I really like the car and the color combination. If I lived closer I would be checking it out for a daily driver. Personally, I like the red red red redneck wheels! If you haven’t already, you should post this over on the HAMB where you will be greeted without prejudice.
  13. C Carl I did contact Classic and Exotic service. They had a repair kit for the Johnson on their web site but not much for the Detroit. When I ask vie email there response was “We can only supply the parts shown on our website and don't know where you can get other parts.” How can they rebuild the carburetors if they don’t know where to get the parts! Alex D.
  14. Carbking No offence has been taken and your advice is greatly appreciated. I am glad you can relate to my Champaign taste on a beer income. I am confident that I can rebuild these carburetors as long as I can acquire the correct parts to do so. I would rather be able to say that I tried and failed, than to have never tried at all. Do you supply parts for these carburetors? Alex D.
